A new one-story, multi-tenant retail building is planned for the corner of Grand Boulevard and Main Street, near Fairfield Inn & Suites.

The proposed building would be 10,200 square feet on 1.32 acres and be surrounded by a hotel to the east and St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church to the north. A shopping center across Main Street houses Wild Eggs, Crown Liquors, Starbucks, Juice Bar and more.

TRICAP Holdings is developing the project,  called The Shoppes at Alexandria. It is part of a planned unit development called The District, which includes single-family housing units.

Rachel Keesling of the City of Carmel Planning and Zoning stated in her report that the department wants the building to reflect a more modern style.

The item will be discussed at the Feb. 6 meeting of the Carmel Plan Commission’s commercial committee.
